River Description


Ed Evangelidi testifies:
This run consists of two gorges. The upper gorge is straightforward Class 1-2 and has a mill race on river right. The lower gorge is through a hemlock forest, has steeper drops and has ruins of the old paper mill at the bottom on river right. Both gorges tend to collect downed trees from time to time. The takeout is on an arm of Prettyboy Reservoir and you shouldnÂt be here. So be quick to drop cars and load up, be as inconspicuous as possible driving by the area and look like a fisherman rather than a boater. Also consider skipping this lovely piece of whitewater in hunting season.

Upper Yough Access Fundraiser a Big Success

2019-01-07 21:16:00-05

Tonight American Whitewater presented the Town of Friendsville, Maryland with a $5000 check towards the extension of the Upper Yough Access Parking Area. This, combined with a $1000 donation from Keelhaulers Canoe Club, made a strong statement of how much paddlers value the river and the town! Under the leadership of Mayor Spencer Schlosnagle and long time paddler and Friendsville resident Jess Whittemore the town raised $7 in additional funding for every dollar paddlers donated - just like they did on the initial construction! This makes these gifts a great value for the whitewater community. A big shout out and thank you to ALL who donated!
